Jenny Setchell: Looking up at Organs and Ceilings


This opulent coffee table book by Jenny Setchell (known for her bestseller “Die Königin und ihr Gefolge”, “Organ-isms”, BuB 13) will fill even the most hardened organ fan with a sense of awe and wonder! There are plenty of organ books packed with pictures of organ cases. But this amazing album brings together more than 50 inspirational photographs of leading instru- ments from four continents and five centuries which for the first time are displayed in the context of the vaulting and ceilings surrounding them. A fascinating insight into how organ-building and architecture can combine to form an incredible harmonious and aesthetic experience. A feast for the eyes to be enjoyed by fans both of organs and of architecture.

Happy Birthday Ton Koopman!

Festschrift Ton Koopman – Studies in Baroque


Ton Koopman is one of the world’s best known and most recognised experts, particularly in baroque and classical music. The friendly conductor, organist and harpsichord player celebrated his 70th birthday on 2nd october 2014, and his colleagues and friends decided to mark this by publishing a veritable and compendious Festschrift.

Inevitably, the focus of the total of 19 essays (including a discography and bibliography), which have been written by leading international academics and practitioners, is on Bach and the organ/organ music, but they also touch on the fine arts and theology.

A new publication which is a must for every musician’s (and music lover’s) library.
